Boro supporter finds rude joke hilarious…about two years after everyone else

He only just realised, bless him

The moment the penny dropped.

We’re not sure whether this Middlesbrough fan has been living under a rock for the last few seasons, or perhaps he’s been cryogenically frozen since the 80s judging from his get-up, but he got there in the end.

Leicester City’s visit to the Riverside Stadium on Monday didn’t exactly make for a barnstormer. The game was every bit as underwhelming as the 0-0 scoreline suggests, and it says a lot that this was probably the highlight.

Whilst the Foxes’ Austrian defender Christian Fuchs – a Premier League champion let’s not forget – was readying himself to take a throw-in midway through the second-half, the Boro supporter in question had a startling revelation.

You can see the cogs whirring in his becapped head when he suddenly discovers that ‘Fuchs’ sounds/looks a lot like ‘Fucks’! Yes that’s right – around two years after everyone had been mildly amused by the schoolboy coincidence.

He is so chuffed by his observation that he lets those around him know – who are either equally slow on the uptake or extremely polite individuals (we assume the latter). It quite literally made his day, bless him…

Props to Deian Sion Thomas for noticing the lightbulb moment.
